Bit o' wisdom - i've been wondering for years how to get a buddy in a chair out on the ice in an ice house. I have recently purchased a Clam Twin Hub II and it pitches like a regular tent with 'hub' type sides, but has a full length zip down door on one side - i.e. ROLL RIGHT IN THERE. 7'x7' footprint with roomy sides. Looks like this:
And it's super roomy inside. I had room for me a sled, a heater, and plenty of room to fish. Gets freekin warm in there too.
Weighs about 15# in a bag and not hard to deploy with an able bodied friend. I can do it myself too and I'm by far no athlete either. I use a drill with the anchor inserter tool Clam sells to put the ice anchors in.
That's awesome that people still want to try... after seeing that sick tank-tread electric chair Tred Barta uses, just go ahead and tell me where folks in chairs can't go these days... more power to 'em.
